Silence Is Golden

Silence is not empty. It's full of answers

— Unknown —


A couple of weeks ago, I had my six-month dental exam.

My X-rays showed a gray area between two of my teeth.

The gray area helped the dentist diagnose me with a “future cavity” and suggested I get the area repaired soon.

We all know if we get a cavity in one of our teeth, the chances of bacteria setting up shop in that cavity and wreaking havoc in our jaw is relatively high…I have three root canals to remind me of that painful fact.


Our brain contains all kinds of cavities, not the kind where bacteria grows but the kind where junk grows if we aren’t careful.

The devil works day and night to fill our brains with junk.

Back to the opening quote…

I did some of my best vision work, back in the golden days of leading our pharmacy, when I was thirty thousand feet in the air, strapped in a seat with no access to the internet and nowhere to go, while on a four or five-hour flight westward.

I used to sit with my journal and jot down thoughts, ideas, visions, and plans for our future state.

Silence and being detached from the world used to be golden for me back in those days.

Silence, indeed, is not empty; it is full of answers.

We live in a very noisy world. A world, if we aren’t careful, that will fill the cavities in our brain with the wrong answers.

Noise and misinformation are very good friends of the devil.

The devil tries to fill our brain cavities with junk all day long.

God’s friend is silence.

It’s in silence where we can draw answers from Him.


How many minutes a day do you spend immersed in noise, filling your brain cavity with junk?

How many minutes a day do you spend immersed in silence with Him, filling your brain cavity with divine answers?

All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room, alone. ~Blaise Pascal


Psalm 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
